Ryan O’Neal has never visited his son in jail -- both before and after the death of Farrah Fawcett, has learned exclusively.

Redmond O’Neal saw his father at Farrah’s funeral and when he was granted a several hour visit to his mother Farrah, shortly before she died. That visit was recorded by cameras for Farrah’s documentary. But Ryan has stayed away from visiting his son, who is deeply shaken by his mother’s death.

Redmond is incarcerated at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic, California where he is in an intensive drug rehab program.

Jail records show that Ryan has not visited him at Pitchess and did not visit him at the jail where he was previously locked up.

A source close to the situation confirms the estrangement and tells RadarOnlinecom: "Redmond was very close to his mother. Redmond and Ryan have never had a close relationship. Redmond has never really had a father figure in his life.


"The loss of his mother has truly shaken Redmond to his core, and in his final telephone conversation with Farrah, he promised her that he was committed to staying sober."

Redmond had two court appearances recently and Ryan, who also was arrested on drug charges last year, did not go to either of his son’s hearings.
